Each class will have half a day of look and learn and half a day of hands on.

Deposit of $50 required upon booking. Full payment of course fees required prior to course commencement. 

Learning the Foil Board

This class will improve your efficiency and your accuracy!

The foil board is the ultimate tool for improving speed without sacrificing quality. I learnt how to use a board at the first salon I ever worked at. I fought against it so hard. I thought I knew everything and would always put it down when my boss walked away. She insisted I learnt and I’m so glad I did. This tool has been key to my success, especially in the early days as a sole trader when there was no one to help. Even now having an assistant seems pointless when I’m using the board. It makes me so fast and I never have issues trying to awkwardly pick up foil. Of course it takes practice, lots and lots of practice. But once you master it you will never foil without the blush girl board. 


What you will learn: 

  • How to stack the board with foils 

  • How to position the board on your body and client 

  • How to hold it in awkward places

  • How to do a full head of foils using the board 

Modern Foil Placement: 
Foil to the Roots 

This foil placement class will cover all your bases without over doing it, ensuring perfect colour work every time.


We'll be focusing on the modern idea of lightness concentrated around the hairline. A process that is not particularly bold but rather mimics the natural lightening process of the hair.


Learn how not to over foil but instead be thoughtful with your placement. Learn how to create lightness in the right areas.

What you will learn:

  • Foil placement 

  • Blonde toning 

  • How to clean out the ends and keep them bright

  • Modern foiling techniques 

Basic Balayage

& Face Framing

An essential skill all modern stylists should have.

Understanding where to place your foils can be hard as a stylist to wrap your head around and I have found through trial and error that every single person needs something a little different, from foil placement to weave depth to highlighting to low lighting, face framing, creating texture, combing baby fine foils with balayage... I’ve done it all. I think I’ve come up with some really practical ways to get the best result in a busy salon environment. I only ever balayage hair in a foil and only ever with my foil board.

I have spent years experimenting with face framing. When done well, this can be super impactful while still natural looking. When done wrong, it’s sososo bad, practice is key and minor adjustments depending on the hairline. If you want to be an on trend hair stylist you should have already nailed this technique. 



What you will learn:

  • Foil placement

  • Weave, width and depth

  • How to tone your balayage and face frame

Balayage Correction:

Highlight and Lowlight


Step up your balayage game. Need to fix or revitalise a clients baly work? Then this class is for you.

It’s almost like a colour correction in many ways. You really need to take a step back and see where the natural fall is. Maybe your client has become over foiled. Does the hair need depth added? 
A full head of low lighting and colour melt would be a short term fix and potentially leave your client feeling dark.


I'll show you how to create the perfect lowlight highlight combination to bring your client back to the perfect textured baly.

What you will learn:

  • Low lighting placement 

  • Balayage correction 

  • Foil placement 

  • Weave, width and depth

  • How to tone your balayage
